  • Description: This guitar has a good bit of wear, but it’s solid. There are lots of nicks, dings, and lots of belt buckle wear. The finish has worn or chipped away down to the wood in some spots around the edges. There is fret and fingerboard wear. Normal stuff for a guitar this age that’s been played. The screws that hold the control cover have been changed to some larger ones, and the screws that hold the battery cover in place have also been changed, so the original threaded body inserts are no longer there. The control cover is chipped. The guitar plays well. The truss rod works great and seems to have never been turned. Everything’s original besides the screws. Electronics are original and working properly. It comes with a non-original case that has seen better days.
